I enjoyed the guitar lesson. I believe I will be able to learn well from his instruction. I reconmmend him to anyone wanting lessons. God bless . Rev Joy
Trevor is a great teacher to my 13 year old son. He incorporates songs my son wants to learn and has a great demeanor. My son began electric guitar lessons with Trevor just 5 short months ago and his progress has been amazing! My son loves to practice the songs they choose together and already feels confident performing for friends and family. Trevor is the best!
Before starting guitar lessons, I did a thorough review and research of all the guitar instructors in the area. By far John is the best instructor out there. John is a top-notch teacher and is very energetic and passionate about the guitar and loves teaching this instrument to others. He is very well organized and systematic in his teaching approach. John's style of teaching enables students to improve their technique very quickly and to learn a wide variety of guitar theory. He is very approachable and friendly, while also bringing a very professional approach that he has honed over many years of teaching guitar. John is also very responsive via e-mail or phone. He takes the time to learn about each individual student. He is a great teacher both for adults or kids. John is obviously a very talented guitarist himself, and he teaches in a way that is easy to learn from. He is very friendly and encourages a very low pressure learning experience. His structured classes allow the student to obtain constant progress and to see a clear line of what specifically is needed to improve upon. He takes a professional yet fun approach to his lessons. John tailors each students learning in a way specific to each one, and his vast knowledge of multiple styles of teaching books and learning aids is fitted to each student as needed. It is definitely not a one lesson fits all approach for him. He will gauge you through your level of expertise and assess your short and long term goals, whether as a beginner or as an advanced player. John then creates a custom lesson plan for each student. I thoroughly enjoy every lesson and see definite and concrete results each week both in my playing ability and in my overall understanding of music. One of my goals, in addition to increasing my performance level, was to actually learn how to read the music. In less than a month, through Johns instruction and teaching, I was on my way to a firm understanding not only in my ability to read music but to play sight reading, something that once existed only as a dream. With Johns help my confidence in playing is at an all-time high, and I without question see myself becoming an excellent guitar player in time with his help. I strongly recommend John as an instructor to anyone at any level interested in becoming a great guitar player and learning more about guitar music theory. - RJW
My grandson, Grayson, had guitar lessons with Chris Primeau over six years. Chris is a graduate of Berklee College of Music-Boston. Our main goal was for Grayson to work with a guitar teacher who could prepare him for acceptance to Berklee. Indeed, that happened. Grayson looked forward to his twice weekly hour lessons and Chris took his talent to new heights constantly. Chris is a world class teacher, cares about his students and is a true professional. I highly recommend Chris. Betty Shindler
I have been taking guitar lessons from Nick recently, and he is great! Very patient and explains things in a way I can understand. Doesn't jump down your throat the way some instructors do. Know he also teaches voice and keyboard lessons, and believe they'd be a good bet too. I would definitely recommend him!!
Steve has been teaching first time guitar lessons to my son. He feels so comfortable with Steve and is learning at a steady pace! Steve is so cool and incorporates a variety of music genres. A great experience!
Thomas is very well rounded. There's a lot to learn, but he breaks it down really well verbally and visually. Super easy to understand, and very patient. I'm a beginner, but I've made great progress in just a few weeks!
I met Chris through a mutant friend when I was interested in learning guitar. From the very first lessons with Chris I learned firmly well how to play the guitar , finger and body positions,technic , music theory everything in a very disciplined manner. While he has a profound and stable classical background he was able to teach me almost every kind of music. I really enjoyed his lessons with him ,I would still be his pupil if had´nt to move for professional reasons.
I took guitar lessons with Tim a couple years ago before he moved away. I knew his skill and talent from his previous work in bands and it was a no-brainer for me to go to him. His ability to assess where you are at as a student and apply the proper curriculum to help advance you in your craft is what you would expect from a quality teacher such as Tim. If you're looking to open your creativity, you can't go wrong seeking guidance with him. He's got my recommendation 🖒👍
Mr. Daniel was professional and knowledgeable about teaching guitar lessons and his passion for teaching the guitar made playing it one of my favorite hobbies.
Jose is extremely knowledgeable in many varieties of guitar styles. He is also very patient! He makes every class fun. Definitely one of the best guitar instructors I've encountered in a long time!
I recently started working with Jose on flamenco guitar lessons with almost no experience playing the guitar. Jose breaks everything down and begins with the basics and makes sure you understand the fundamentals. He's really flexible and accommodating with his schedule and makes it to where it is convenient for the both of you. I would highly recommend him for guitar lessons; he is an excellent instructor and passionate about teaching!
I'm a professional musician and I've had more guitar teachers than I can remember. Randal is definitely one that I remember. He is fun, encouraging and so easy going. He knows how to teach guitar in a way that makes sense and leaves you feeling successful. I highly recommend him!
Howard makes learning guitar fun and easy! His wealth of musical knowledge and experience as a teacher is exceptional. You won't be disappointed! Every lesson is tailored to suit your individual needs and he will both challenge you and encourage you to meet your greatest potential. He is fantastic at working with students of any age.
Learning the Guitar under David's tutelage has been a very enjoyable experience. I could not have found a better instructor. He makes learning theory fun. I'm looking forward to continue my work with David. So, if you're looking for an instructor, look no further. You will not be disappointed. He loves to teach and it comes through how much during each lesson.
My first few lessons with Eddie were wonderful!! He made sure that the way of tutoring is what fits me as a beginner. He's super organized and patient. VERY knowledgeable and skillful with guitar and music theory. He even helped me to pick up my first guitar! He's very flexible with the schedule as well. I highly recommend Eddie to be your teacher!
I've taken guitar lessons before with a couple of different instructors. I can honestly say that I learned quicker and more enjoyable with Gustavo! He has an amazing gift for music. I would recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to play.
